Dean of Canterbury, R. Payne Smith authored the Thesaurus Syriacus, a definitive lexicon that had rich citations and rare definitions of idioms. As a result it often functions as an index to much of the Syriac literature published up until the late nineteenth century. The obituary says that his work will be remembered as a "chief contribution" among "lexicographical enterprises." Published in The Academy, Volume 47.
